How to protect your mental health in a pandemic

The Full Picture | Colt Technology Services

It seems only fitting to end 2020 with an episode around how this year has affected our mental health and what we can do to safeguard it. Our host Izzy Bishop sits down with Bram Troost, qualified Mental Health First Aider at Colt, and Hayley Dare and Gavin Richardson, co-founders of Wellbeing Mental Health. They discuss how to separate your work and home life, what to do if you’re not feeling so festive this year, and how to identify and approach a colleague or friend who may be struggling.
Further speaker details below.

Giving every voice a platform to be heard and building an environment where our people feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work is a core focus for our business. Producing this podcast is our way of taking one meaningful step towards that, through education, communication and listening.
